What's on My Workdesk Wednesday

Morning folks....middle of the week and time to join in the fun once again at WOYWW.....remember my book that I was going to be altering last week....yes this one......

let me tell you that the project has moved on in leaps and bounds....NOT.....


I am still thinking about it and have only got as far as looking out some papers and stamps....
I've got that affliction that all crafters dread..."Thinking About and Analysing Everything Syndrome".    I definitely work better under pressure so if this little project had a deadline to meet...I would be whizzing through it no probs.  When folks ask me where I get my inspiration I tell them to just get stuck in and have a play....what's the worst that can happen....a bit of paper ends up in the bin.....perhaps I should listen to my own advice and get a-ripping and a-tearing this delicious pad of gorgeous Tim Holtziness but I have a funny feeling that Mr Mojo only popped in to drop off his dirty washing...pick up some clean clothes and he's off again....so this could end up being the longest running saga in crafting history.
Catch with you all tomorrow for hopefully a sneaky peek and an introduction to my new friend
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add:   just when I thought Mr Blogger had sorted out yesterday's comments problem....it appears not.. either that or he can't count

Good morning Kath abd Buddy. Your desk looks rather interesting Kath, Tim Holtz stash, I adore his stuff. Oh no I feel a shopping spree coming on. Think I'll just go and sweeten up the hubby. Have a good day both of you.

Cardarian said...

Don't worry your mojo will be back soon - and to be honest looking at your blog I think he never left! Ha, ha...
Have a lovely day,
Hugs
Cardarian

Anesha said...

I am sure you will create a stunning piece. Sounds like there is no reason for Buddy to be left behind when you go to the craft shop! Bet that has made his day:) Hugs to you both. Anesha :)

Cheryl said...

Ann Rosie said...

Still not found that elusive Mr Mojo Kath? - I'll conduct a wider search right now - although I agree with Cardarian that he really never left in the first place!!
Never mind - chill! - no reason to pressure ourselves.
Love and Hugs as always
Ann

Well the stash on your desk looks very promiseing. I know what you mean I spend ages trying to decide what to do then end up with nothing, I have projects like that, they just stay in the packet.
Hope your mojo comes back soon, have a good day.

Big Hugs Carol xx

Helen said...

ginny c said...

Sometimes I do the same thing, but it's because I'm procrastinating for fear of making a mistake. Other times I jump right in and often regret not doing any pre-planning. I think it depends on the cost of the project and the results I hope to gain from it. Happy WOYWW this week. I bet next week, we'll see something really spectacular.

mustavcoffee said...

Morning Kath, looks like you've got some gorgeousness sitting there, I'm having trouble thinking 'how are you keeping your hands off it?'
Perhaps if you start with a small project it will very quickly build into a theme for your book. Just think of the fun you're going to have using all the stuff, have to admit to a small degree of greenness over here:)
Of course you could also go down the route of trying to ignore it completely and get on with what you must do first, y'know like the housework arrgh!, xx

tkelli said...

Well if that's the case, we want to see your book by next WOYWW!! Looks like it's going to be pretty..love the ink and such that you've picked out!

Mummylade said...

at least you've started on it =). Looking forward to see the progress

joey said...

OH NO Kath I hope Mr Blogger will start behaving it drives me nuts!. LOL at your altered project, you have got further than I would have! lol. Joey.x

Anneliese said...

Ooh you've got that lush set of Tim stamps .. I keep looking at that one every time I go to the shop lol :D x

kathleen said...

Maybe Mr Mojo is just having a short break Kath.He was maybe jealous cos you got to Wimbledon.

Kathleen x

* Shaz * said...

A very nice tidy desk Kath and if i see Mojo i'll put him straight back on the train home to you x

Linda Elbourne said...

I can't type constructively today ... I just wanna come play in your serene and inviting looking space ... Can I ??? Huh ??? Can I ????

Doone said...

oh dear.... over analysis syndrome - cure = decide what you don't want - see what's left? - nooo, that won't work either - let's face it this could be a ten year project?

Suzanne said...

Everything looks so neat and tidy - and inviting, lol! Think you should hold a cardmaking day Kath and we can all come visit and have fun - just joking-but it would be nice
Hugs
Suzanne x

Enfys said...

Nice tidy desk Kath, go on, break into Timmies paper, you know you want to....... Can't wait to see the finished book
big hugs
En xx

Lynn said...

I know exactly what you mean as I always think about things too much rather than getting stuck in. Saw this quote recently and have now taken it for my excuse when needed, 'Indecision is the key to flexability'.

Lynn x

Diane said...

Lovely muted papers you have chosen there. Can't wait to see the finished article. Would you like me to set a time limit for you??????

Darcy said...

I had probs with comments yesterday too, it said 8 all day when there were really 10, but now seems sorted.

i think you should break the project down into stages, post each stage each week, so we can keep check on you lol

stage 1 being the thinking about it...not allowed to use that stage again next week.

butlersabroad said...

Ah well, obviously the trick is to set yourself a deadline, especially one that's imminent.... will Sunday work for you!! I'll pop back and see if you've posted it and risen to the challenge!!

Hugs to you and Buddy (of course)
Brenda

Sarpreet said...

Look forward to seeing the end result

Wipso said...

I think our mojos go on holiday at this time of year cos mine has been missing for a few days :-)

Spyder said...

I've been hunting for one of those books for ages, but like you, I know, when I finally get one, it will stay untouched for ages while I think!
(lyn))

Claireliz said...

Oooh that looks incredibly interesting, cannot wait to see the finished thing, please let me know when its done, I've been itching to try something similar :)

Toucan Scraps said...

great papers and stamps.

if a deadline will help you fiish it - how about next Wednesday?

Erika said...

Oh Kath I have got one of those books and it has just sat and I've looked at it then put it back in the cupboard, lol. I am now looking forwards to see what you do. :)
Hope you had fun at Wimbledon too?

Twiglet said...

Just go with the flow! Mojo will return when good and ready!!

Kat said...

I know what you mean about over-analysing Kath. I can take ages trying to decide what DP to use etc. My friend and I spent some time this afternoon making some red and white cards for Jacqui. It was good to craft together.

Craft Addicts - Tracy Evans said...

Can't wait to see what you create when you get started. Love what you have picked out to work with. Have a good evening, Tracy Evans x

Macpurp said...

you are just teasing us! i thought you were about to show us the finished item, or at least how it was coming along!

love teen x

Andrea - Wales, UK said...

Tidy work desk, lots of lovely stash deadline is next Wednesday....does that help??

xx

peggy aplSEEDS said...

hi, Kath! i've been wanting to do an altered book for some time now so i will check to see how yours is going and maybe finally start on mine.

Angie said...

I think you may have put your finger on the problem a lot of us are having ...we are thinking too much. As it is such a beautiful base to create on, you want to get it right ...if it were a tag ...well there is always another one if something doesn't work ...so you tend not to over plan. I cant wait to see your finished project ... but in your own time .xx

Sue from Oregon said...

when you start this project...it will be perfect! my blogger comment list is changing all day long too!

Heather x said...

it will be wonderful no matter how long you take to complete it :)
*hugs* Heather x

Sunshine Girl said...

Dont worry about not doing the box yet - I have that same box and mine hasnt been done and I have had it for about 2 years now! did use the little one as a travel journal box when I went to the States three years ago but the big one is still sitting there waiting... I am sure we will both get around to them one day!

Minxy said...

All i can really say to you to make you feel any better is ITS THE THOUGHT THAT COUNTS lol.. well isn't that what they say.. and your just taking your time thinking about it.. i'm sure the mojo will appear when you least expect it and you'll create something wonderful..

Julia Dunnit said...

Ah yes, the thinking and walking around it phase. I do this a lot with Th type stuff becasue I'm scared to death of the expectation!! Ultiamtely though, it'llbe fine, because no-one - not even you at this stage - knows where you're going with it! Good luck - it's not mojo, it's just paper and ink!!

Chrissie said...

It all looks very neat and tidy, maybe you'll think of something to make it messy really soon!
